If you do not represent a business or your business is not able to apply online, use the HH91 form to send samples of your plants to Fera Science Ltd. (Fera) for inspection before you export them. This is to make sure they meet the plant health requirements of importing countries.

The Animal and Plant Health Agency can only issue a phytosanitary certificate following a satisfactory inspection of your samples.

Businesses can apply for plant export certificates and inspections online.

For further information, read the guide to plant health controls and exports.
